Click for image enlargement
A campaign badge produced for the New Hampshire delegation to the Baltimore "Young Men's National Convention" of May 4, 1840. It is quite similar to the "Poor Man's Friend" badge (no. 1840-9), having the roundel portrait surmounted by an eagle holding a "Harrison & Reform" streamer, with a log cabin appearing beneath. This badge adds farm implements, an anchor, a shield, and a spear. It also includes a barrel of hard cider next to the cabin, and the slogans "The Union of the Whigs, for the sake of the Union" and "Don't despair of the Granite State."
